Current Position

I use advanced synchrotron-based techniques to study the growth and assembly of inorganic nano-objects, as well as the interaction between components in colloidal systems. I also investigate the linear and nonlinear optical properties of noble metal nanoparticles.

The FRMNGE gathers about 1500 researchers belonging to 31 institutes and laboratories from Eastern France that share an interest in materials science and nanoscale structures and phenomena.
